Hello, I'm new to the site, but I recently had found a Bengal kitten (about 6 months) and when I went to pick him up... the woman's house and the environment concerned me. She had about 5 or 6 dogs, at least 15 cats running around and more in her basement. She allowed the cats to run outside and none of the kittens had had their shots. They were very cheap (compared to the $600+ they usually are) and when I brought the kitten home, he had fleas and borderline pnuemonia with a fever of 103. She told me that she would have the papers for the kitten in two months and would mail them to me. Everytime I call her, she never returns my calls and I called her and told her about the kitten's health and she acted shocked that he was sick and I told her the vet said it's common with cats and she didn't know that. He said it's very contagious and I told her that as well, she said she would keep an eye on her animals but I'm very concerned for them.. They look like theyre being fed, but she lied about the cat food she sent home with the kitten.. it was very generic when she told me it was Science Diet. I'm not familiar with breeders and have not dealt with one before, but talking to a co-worker who has a Bengal as well said that her methods and care are very questionable. Should I do something or maybe the question is, can I? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks!
